I am running windows 10 home on a Dell Inspiron 620 and keep getting the following error when attempting to install Adobe AIR:
Sorry, an error has occured
An error occurred while installing Adobe AIR. Installation may not be allowed by your administrator. Please contact your administrator."
I am the administrator! Help, I need Adobe AIR to run a couple of other programs I am trying to run.
Can you try below mentioned steps:
- After downloading the Adobe Air .exe file, go to its location (usually in your Downloads folder) and right click on it. Rather than clicking on "Run as Administrator" (which did not work for me), click on "Properties".
- Then go to the "Compatibility" tab.
- At the bottom of the Compatibility tab place a check beside "Run this program as an Administrator".
- Hit the "Apply" button and try running your Adobe Air install again.
Great and thanks so much. For anyone reading, you might have to restart your computer after you follow the steps above for Adobe Air to install without giving the error.
